The essence of Iceland

These cottages are so nicely set up in the fiord background that it seems a Photoshop edit. Inside they are warm and comfortable (but you cannot bring the luggage upstairs).
Breakfast is nice and you have to spend some time in the outside hot pool looking at the scenery.

What an amazing weekend!

Although we had a misunderstanding and received a room instead of a cabin this was an amazing stay! Not only were we able to do laundry without paying an extra fee but also cooked in the guest houses private kitchen because we had a holiday.breakfast is small and nice but the lady who owns the place is really really sweet!! 🙂 deff a nice break from campsites and a lovely way to spend the weekend

Heaven is a place on earth

It was a wonderful surprise to find such a beautiful place in the middle of nowhere. The landscape is magnificent, between the sea and the mountains. The red cottages are very well equipped and organized. If you want, you can use the sauna and the amazing hot tub under the sky at any time you like. The very typical restaurant nearby served the best food we had in Iceland. There was also a very friendly dog called Stella.

New cottages are perfect!

We stayed in one of the new cottages nearest to the road and it was perfect! Clean, comfertable, good beds, nice room. We even met the house-fox who played with the owners dog. View in the fjord is beautifull onlyvie to the village is industril so for us a little less. There is a maintenence building with a washingmachine dryer and sauna, Also a hottub.
